With PDP Misbehaving, APC Will Take Over Nigeria In 2015 – Lamido

Published

Jigawa State Governor, Sule Lamido

Governor Sule Lamido of Jigawa State has warned that the All Progressives Congress (APC) may take over leadership at the centre in 2015, if the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) does not put its house in order as the crisis rocking the party continues to create opportunities of advancement for the opposition party.

Lamido, who was one of the governors initially thought to have defected to the opposition party alongside five of his colleagues in the G7, said that if the PDP continues to misbehave, it would suffer defeat in the hands of APC in the 2015 general elections.

“PDP has been misbehaving and if it continues to misbehave in this way, the APC would take over the country in 2015. I now see the wisdom in the formation of the APC. Since the PDP is really misbehaving, the party will give PDP a good fight in the forthcoming election”, he said.

Lamido added that with the formation of APC, democracy had been made more vibrant in the country.

He made this known on Tuesday while receiving the leadership of the Kano and Jigawa chapters of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR) when they paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House, Dutse.

“I was amongst the G-7 governors for a certain ideology we shared, yet I was called names. I was called the black sheep from the North, I was called anti-North in the past, because of what I believed in”, said Lamido.

He said that he had been vilified by the public in the past, but that it would not force him to change his stance on what he thinks is right.

Lamido expressed dismay that people choose to hurl insults and abuses at others when they do not reason along the same line.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has blasted President Muhammadu Buhari over his nationwide broadcast over the ongoing #EndSARS protest rocking the country.

He, however, failed to acknowledge the shooting of protesters by soldiers of the Nigerian Army at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday night.

Reacting in a statement on Thursday night by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbodinyan, the PDP said Buhari’s address was depressing and failed empathy test.

The party appealed to Nigerians, particularly the youth, to remain calm and allow a return to normal life in the collective quest for peaceful co-existence in the overall interest of the nation.
